Width: 8.5" Length: 12"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: The flower pedals are made with Angelina, center is a brad. Background fabric is some sort of upholstery fabric - I liked the texture - makes a good contrast with the shine. Stem, leaf and grass are made with the backside of a commercial cotton - again I was looking for contrast. I quilted the background in a wispy weedy pattern and added French knots for even more texture. Satin stitch binding.

Artist Statement: I made the flower to decorate a Christmas package. After the gift was opened, I rescued the flower and made this quilt with it.
